Well, just Gurren-hen, but still!

Edit: Title changed because they're doing the series more with movie units.

How about we wait and see whether this announcement is fake or not?

I so hope this is true! Gunleon and Gurren Lagann in one game! If GaoGaiGar, Mazinkaiser, Shin Getter and Evas would be there too that would make the perfect SRW game!

If it's a hoax it's definitely very convincing.

Well, Lagann-hen would´ve been way too ridiculous.

I mean, c´mon.
Rolling a Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is like playing an Evangelion as tall as a galaxy.(In SRW, at least).

Okay bitches, it looks legit: http://blog.spalog.jp/?eid=863429#sequel

The cast list is INSANELY HUGE, even if the returning series will be represented by just one or two units each:

Invincible Super Man Zambot 3
Invincible Steel Man Daitarn 3
Muteki Robo Trider G7
Space Emperor God Sigma
Space Warrior Baldios
Six God Combination Godmars
Combat Mecha Xabungle
*Armored Trooper VOTOMS
*Armored Trooper VOTOMS: The Last Red Shoulder
*Armored Trooper VOTOMS: Red Shoulder Document: The Roots of Ambition
*Armored Trooper VOTOMS: Pailsen Files
The Super Dimension Century Orguss
Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam
Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack
New Mobile Report Gundam Wing
After War Gundam X
Turn A Gundam
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny
*Mobile Suit Gundam 00 1st Season

Choujuu Kishin Dancougar
Juusou Kikou Dancouga Nova
Shin Getter Robo Armageddon
*Shin Mazinger Impact! Z-Hen
*Chikyuu Bouei Kigyou DaiGuard
The Big O
Overman King Gainer
Gravion Zwei
Genesis of Aquarion
*Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
*Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
*Gurren Lagann The Movie: Childhood's End
Macross F
*Macross F Movie: Itsuwari no Utahime
*Eureka Seven Movie: Pocketful of Rainbows

*=Debut
-CCA and MF-Movie are there for units only.


In summary, it's multiple levels of HORY SHIT. Apparently this game will be an opening chapter for a huge story spread across multiple "episodes" (think of Half-Life 2 Episode 1), so don't expect TTGL or Shin Dragon just yet. As for any further rumors, it's better not to pay any attention to them, since Terada usually trolls everybody at this stage. For example, when Z was announced, he made comments about there being no secrets in the game, and see how that turned out to be...

The TV series was covered in Z1, and this time they're doing the movie. Since the plot of the Z saga is based on dimension-warping hijinks caused by a plot device borrowed from Orguss, and since the returning cast members of Z2 are most likely from the world of Z1, it should be pretty interesting to seem them interacting with the nigh-goatee-sporting bizarro cast from E7 the movie. Holland being an even bigger asshole? You better believe it!

And lets see what's confirmed enemy wise:

Image
The Enki is confirmed for TTGL, so it's a safe bet we're gonna have Viral. Main question is whether or not it's gonna be mass produced.

Image
Garada K7, a Mazinger Z class, with that chances are Doublas M2 and their combined form of Garadabura MK01 will also appear.

Movie Nirvash Spec 1 takes out an A-Zone.

Dancouga Nova appears to be destroying a waroid or genocidron, although which one is unknown.

It seems that Banpresto has finally decided to make worth my PSP(s), better late than never.

16-minute gameplay video is now out. Noteworthy things:

* Levels are now non-isometric, as isometric view probably wouldn't work well on a handheld console.
* Apparently, some of the secondary characters from returning series now appear as summonable attacks. Seems like a pretty good way to keep the huge cast list under control.
* Since both Bobby and Leeron are in, it means this is probably the gayest game ever made.

Screenies:

SPOILER: Show

Cue the opening theme!

Dai Gurren, Dayakkaiser, and King Kittan are also playable units. Rumor at GameFAQs says this half will do the battle of Tepplin. Also, they're doing the series with movie units in it for the most part.

Well, the game is out on the internet, if anyone wants to give it a go. I'm personally going to wait for the inevitable menu translation.

My friend finished it and it looks like this game is more of a demo of what's to come, sadly. Only the first half of Gurren's story is covered... and they even did the same with Shin Mazinger. Meaning that even though Nagai himself thought up the idea for that show while dreaming up future SRW attacks and thought "Mazinger turns into a fist and destroys everything" would have been a badass idea, that doesn't actually happen in this game.
aaaaaa

It was stated months ago this would be a two-parter. As for plots, he only anime to have any actual plot and finish were the Eureka Seven movie, Dai-Guard, and Dancouga Nova. Rumor has it part 2 will have four new anime to it while covering everything that wasn't covered.

I still have to complete the last stage but I've been really annoyed by the lack of decent secrets (the only secret character is an original one), I hope that they'll include more secrets in the second part.
